Engineering professor sues Square over origin story

Thursday, 30 January 2014 16:41 Published in Local News
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A Washington University electrical engineering professor is suing credit card processor Square Inc. in the latest legal dispute over the company's mobile plug-in technology.
 
Robert E. Morley Jr. sued Square and company founders Jack Dorsey and James McKelvey Jr. Thursday in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri.  The patent infringement suit calls the Square origin story a "fabrication" and says the two men squeezed Morley out of the San Francisco-based company.
 
Dorsey is a St. Louis native and chairman at Twitter. McKelvey is a WashU graduate who still lives in the St. Louis area. Square and its co-founders sued Morley in 2010 in a related patent dispute that remains pending.

Lawyers: Missouri moving too quickly on executions

Thursday, 30 January 2014 15:47 Published in Local News
ST. LOUIS (AP) - By the time the U.S. Supreme Court refused a last-minute stay of execution for Herbert Smulls, the Missouri inmate was already dead. His attorneys say it was the third straight time a Missouri inmate has been executed with an appeal pending.
 
Late Wednesday, attorneys for Smulls made one last appeal to the Supreme Court. It had already ruled hours earlier that the execution could proceed.
 
Smulls' attorney Joseph Luby says the stay was denied at 10:24 p.m., four minutes after Smulls was pronounced dead.
 
Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster says in a statement that the Supreme Court has ruled that pending litigation is not sufficient to stop an execution. He says the state directly asked the high court if the execution should be stayed, and was told no.
